Back then when the locals came to know about the hot water, they immediately put the tubs next to the shoreline that made a great way to relax and rejuvenate. The geothermal water in the hot tubes is fed by the borehole. This village is located near a curvy cliff, while the population of the village is approximately 70-80 people.
